It seems not true, actually!

The error messages current location is decided by FPC make file and not by our
scripts. And even it we are going to overwrite this we may want to move the
error files to either
/usr/share/fpc/3.0.4/compiler/msg/errore.msgor to
but not to
For now I'll probably try to change Lazarus default search path.
